First Monday is a Republican Forum allowing members of the club to become acquainted with and participate in discussions with elected officials, candidates and party leaders.

Although the emphasis of the monthly meetings is to feature political speakers, First Monday frequently features individuals who discuss issues that will impact each of us.

First Monday is a Republican forum. We are open to any persons interested in learning more about the political process.
